Today is the first day of presentations. They go decently, though I’m wishing that I had been a bit more thoughtful with some of the groups. Two students are surprise absent, though one of them manages to deliver her snacks before her appointment.
I do some pre-grading on Tuesday. We try to grade the rest of the portfolios. I also remember that I have 22 advisees instead of 18 from last year or 19 (though really fewer when we did portfolios) from 2 years ago.
The janitor kicks us out at 7, which is reasonable.
- Show advisees their grades tomorrow, which always causes feelings?
- Do station presentations (where groups present to each other) or have groups stand up and present in front of the class? Presenting in front of the class makes me nervous, management-wise and stations get kiddos to talk to each other so much…
Picture: Grading station from today. This year’s innovation? Get the kiddos to put their binders in a box
